0416/1422 October 2014Lexus Australia

I am appalled by the image used in the Lexus advertisement, as enclosed.

This is currently running, and I cut this one out of The Age of Saturday 6th September 2014. Presumably it is to be seen in many other places.

I generally find the objectification of women, so widely used in advertising, offensive. But this ad takes it to new extremes, not only in the excessive representation of the female in a doll-like manner with massive amounts of makeup, beyond all regular use, but particularly the direct sexual implication in the manner of her mouth represented as an orifice.

Towards the end of the commercial, he proceeds to lay full length, face down, in an illuminated sun bed watched by the second man.
